Description by OLDIES.com:
"Molly's Theory of Relativity" is a sexy, funny, surreal, and devastating portrait of a beautiful twenty-eight-year-old astronomer who, having unexpectedly lost her job, is poised to make perhaps the first reckless decision of her life. Her story unfolds during an eighteen-hour period, on Halloween. Providing counsel on the fateful day are her husband, her father-in-law, three deceased relatives, a precocious nine-year-old trick-or-treater, her grandfather from Minot, North Dakota, and a six-year-old neighbor, who may or may not be imaginary. "Molly's Theory of Relativity" is about the economy, and how we value what we do for a living, to ourselves and to 6 others. It's observes the unbreakable bonds of family, and posits the notion that death is merely a relative thing.
A 28-year-old astronomer named Molly ponders an uncertain future after suddenly losing her job, and finding her confidence shaken for the first time in her life. Meanwhile Molly's husband, friends, family, neighbors, and one unusually perceptive Halloween trick-or-treater all weigh in with their opinions on just how she should handle the precarious situation.
